  • Why Does Frankfurt Think Bs Is Worse Than Lying Analysis

    1. Why does Frankfurt think BS is worse than lying? Explain in detail. - Although both a liar and bullshitter are abusing the truth, Frankfurt believes that bullshitting is worse than lying because when someone tells a lie they are concerned about keeping the truth from the person/s they are lying to. A bullshitter does not care about these things. The only thing that matters to the bullshitter is being able to get away with not telling the truth. When someone lies, they always have to keep one eye on the truth so that they can continue to avoid it. A bullshitter, on the other hand, does not focus on keeping up with the truth because they have zero regard for the person who they are bullshitting. 2. Analyze McGinn’s moral argument and how it does or does not apply to the public policy issue of children’s advertising described in Consuming Kids. After reading McGinn’s moral argument about mindfucking, one can conclude that this concept does apply to the public policy issue of children’s advertising. Consuming kids is about how advertising targets children to make them believe that they need whatever it is being advertised. Mindfucking is a type of abuse that plays on people’s emotional sensitivities. For example: a commercial that has a bunch of kids playing with the new iPod touch and using words like cool and fun will create the message that in order to be “cool” one must own the new iPod touch. This concept is used not just in electronics but also with toys, food, and…

  • Anti Oedipus

    desire for power and control is innate for human beings. While psychoanalysis is initially liberatory by questioning this fundamental assumption of fascism, it still holds its' ghost by viewing that desire is fundamentally characterized by acquisition. Deleuze and Guattari are truly subversive by questioning this whole negative logic of desire. Through understanding desire as preceding the notion of the subject, Deleuze and Guattari provide an approach that is both revolutionary and…

  • The Importance Of Integrative Health

    The stem cell research compared with the classification of a person through Dosas is just proof in how much there is to be learned about Ayurveda and other traditional methods. The stem cell research is new to me and I am coming from a place of little wisdom on studies such as the Human Genome Project but if the evidence out there is connecting our bodies molecularly to the earth than we need to continue studying. I agree with Gadgil, (2009) that the Sanskrit language needs to be researched on…

This small technique made…

  • David Hume Justification Of Induction

    habit rather than reason. A few ideas have emerged which aim to solve these problems of induction. The first being the notion to follow Karl Popper’s view and refrain from using induction in science (Vickers, 2016). Popper also argued that sense observation was not the only legitimate source of knowledge and thus all sources should be used (Kelly, 2010). Another way for scientists to get around the problem is to remove induction from the guidelines of deduction. Hume assumed that deduction was…
